I have some of these coins and unless they are mint ms-65 or better yet one of the rare S proof coins they wont be worth more then a few dollars a piece.Collectors that do have these in thier collection can expect a devaluation of the price with the multitude that Littleton will flood the market with.

True, however at just face value of 1 dollar each, 5 ton of coin is a fortune. But I imagine these coins will bring more than face value from collectors who want more or don't one to start with.

If each coin weighs approx. 1 ounce then the face value would be in the neighborhood of $160,000.oo

220,000 coins, the face value of one dollar would make total face value $220,000 dollars. Collector value would be higher,@ $10 each depending on condition, year and if they are one of the rare ones that go for $4,000 or so. So the guy might sell to the distributor for $3 to $5 a coin making a nice profit, the coin company makes out like a bandit too. If he is smart, he will invest in something other than U.S. dollars. The U.S. dollar is about to take another big hit.

I have one 1972 specimen that will grade around MS-65 and the redbook value is less then $3.00 and these coins are still highly available in such grades fro less then $10.00.Don't get me wrong I have done my share of biz with Littleton but anybody going $10.00 or better is kind of getting it broke off in them.That is unless its was an S proof that graded high or an error.

I am sure at least one party(Littleton)will make out very well when they market these,I am curious to se what they will price and grade them at in there spring brochure.

Not an expert, but the average coins seem to retail pretty well. I'll check E-bay too. Face value is the value printed on the money, Ike dollars are face value one dollar.

Well, printed or minted officially, counterfitting works only if you don't get caught. Of course the way the Fed is printing dollars, dollars will not be worth the paper they are printed on. Invest in Robots, we are the future. Repeat after me, "In Robots We Trust", "The Technology of Peace", "Hail to our Cybernetic Overlords".
